About this listing

Well designed one-bedroom apartment in a diverse, friendly neighborhood located just off of West Main Street walking distance to UVA/downtown. Fully stocked kitchen, clawfoot soaking tub, beautiful heart pine floors and marble tile bathroom, screened in porch. Make this your home away from home!

The space

Come stay in the 1st floor apartment in this newly renovated turn of the century house in Fifeville. This unique apartment enters through a covered porch and into a private downstairs apartment.

There is an open kitchen/dining room ready for preparing and enjoying your gourmet cooking. Bathroom boasts unique tile-work, claw-foot tub and spacious walk-in shower. The bedroom features a comfortable queen size bed with a new Serta mattress (bought in August 2014). There is a blow up air mattress for sleeping an additional person and a pack and play (located in the dining/living room). We provide all sheets and linens.

The house is divided into two apartments with a double locked door between the two (no access between apartments, you have the downstairs all to yourself).

We generally only accept two night (Friday and Saturday) reservations on the weekends unless it is last minute.

Our house is perfectly situated in a great neighborhood where folks stop to talk on the street and walking/biking is the norm. We are just three blocks from West Main Street, a 10 minute walk to the Downtown Mall, and a 15 minute walk to UVA and the Corner. Extremely convenient to the train and bus stations.

We love animals and understand that you want to bring yours with you, but are also cognizant of the impact that animals can have on a house. Thus, we charge $25/per night for pets (negotiable for longer stays) and also reserve the right to learn more about the size, etc.

We have a stacked washer and dryer available for your use.

Plenty of counter space along with a full fridge, sink, dishwasher, microwave, gas range and convection oven. Perfect for making a quick snack, breakfast or a home cooked dinner. We keep the kitchen stocked with everything you need for cooking and enjoying a nice meal (no food).

Oakhart Social--our current favorite, lots of yummy, interestingly prepared vegetables, meats and seafood. Also good cocktails

Oliver's place was clean, spacious, and just as advertised-- we had a very nice stay with our 3-year-old son, who particularly liked the book selection. Kitchen appliances are nicely updated and the bathroom is huge.

Great stay at Oliver's! Check-in process was seamless and the unit was spotless and well-appointed. Lovely apartment with everything you'd need, and Oliver was great with communication. The location was very central and was walkable to the pedestrian mall and campus. The immediate neighborhood around the house isn't super nice though, and I was stopped on the street near the house and asked for money. I never felt unsafe as I was traveling with someone, but walking alone at night might make some feel uncomfortable.

Location was perfect, close to shopping centers, restaurants, and lively downtown. The house was perfect for us, quaint and quiet. Loved the porch, would enjoy morning tea and listen to the birds. Oliver was helpful in every way, answered my questions promptly and the instruction was clear.

The apartment was good and as described. It was convenient to Main Strret and a short drive to UVA and the downtown mall. Very cozy and comfortable! Will certainly look into staying there again when next in Charlottesville.

Oliver User Profile

I grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia and live here with my wife, Natasha, our daughter Ursula and our exceptional dog Lika. We have had many amazing experiences both as hosts and guests on airbnb and are always excited to host fellow travelers.

We have both recently transitioned to working for ourselves in order to have more flexible schedules and allow for more travel. To celebrate we went on a 10 month trip to South and Central America, beginning with the World Cup in Brazil! We are glad to be back in town and excited to be hosting again.

We are adventurous and outdoorsy, have a passion for good food and Virginia wine. We are huge fans of our community and look forward to sharing ideas and insider tips with you so you can enjoy Charlottesville to its fullest.
